Forum: forums Subject: How to delete movies???

I am pretty desperate: for the last week I've tried - unsuccesfully - to delete movies (don't ask me why, I have my reasons) which I uploaded but there seems to be no obvious way of doing so.

Can someone please tell me how to do this??
It's pretty urgent AND important!! Thanks !!!!

supply links to items that you want deleted, admins will take care of them.

btw, if you want to delete these files right now, you can delete them and leave the items empty - see this FAQ section

Thx, that's already something but I'd like them to be COMPLETELY gone... hope somebody will take care of that.
Thx so far...!!

BTW: I just realized that I tried to do exactly that (Deleting via FTP) and the items re-appeared after 24h or so... not very useful! And changing the metadata proved impossible because - although I didn't touch it - the system complained about the Item ID being unique and couldn't be changed...

via FTP, you can't delete the folder, but you can delete files that you uploaded and their derivatives.

Exactly what I did... and the files were back 24h later (supposedly restored from a backup). I can try again if you want but I would really prefer if an admin took care of it OR if they added a simple "remove" button...

I'm in a similar situation, I've sent an email asking for an audio item to be removed last week. I deleted the files but the item is still there.. I'd like to know, will the admins take care to delete it sooner or later or I simply have to give up? Just to know.

What happens if you need to remove all of your contributions.. yup every last one? That's the spot I'm in now.

Yeah I just sent my second email to info@archive.org.. the first one several weeks ago, trying to space them out. I was hoping that's how it's done, but with no response I was getting nervous.
